IMT’s products, including its flagship SevenBore ultrafiltration membranes which incorporate seven capillaries into a single fibre, are suitable for high-pressure applications particularly in upstream offshore oil and gas operations.

With IMT’s ultrafiltration membrane technology, GE will be expanding and complementing its existing ZeeWeed advanced ultrafiltration hollow-fibre membrane portfolio.
 
“The acquisition of IMT Solutions and its polyethersulphone membranes will complement our current offerings and offers terrific opportunities for further growth,” said Heiner Markhoff, president and CEO - water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
 
“GE and IMT Solutions share a commitment to purifying water and reusing water through the use of membranes. Our technologies have great synergy and together will be able to reach a broader market,” said Nico Marsman, general manager, IMT Solutions.
